In this study, microhardness testing showed that enamel development was more closely related to the length of the developing incisor than to the age of the animal. Increase in hardness values was seen initially at the tip of the tooth and gradually progressed towards the apex. The development of the thinner lingual enamel was always in advance of that of… CONTINUE READING
